HCPS McKinney-Vento Coffee and Conversation
November 29 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
The HCPS McKinney-Vento team is hosting a “Coffee and Conversation” gathering Nov. 29 to celebrate the**grand opening of the McKinney-Vento Clothing Closet and Food Pantry** at New Bridge Learning Center, and to express the team’s deep gratitude to the donors who have made it possible.
You’ll have a chance to meet the entire HCPS McKinney-Vento team, hear from Lisa Ann Abernathey — HCPS’ liaison to students experiencing homelessness — and gain a firsthand understanding of why the team’s work is so very important.
What does the HCPS McKinney-Vento team do? Staff members administer the federal McKinney-Vento Actin Henrico County, which stipulates that homeless children be identified and enrolled in school, and have full and equal opportunity to succeed.
The HCPS team has used recent federal American Rescue Plan funding to implement important programs to benefit Henrico’s most vulnerable youth — like weekly Spanish tutoring for McKinney-Vento staff members, so we can better connect with Spanish-speaking families. To keep this and other important programs going, we need your help to strengthen our network of support for Henrico’s vulnerable children.
Come celebrate Nov. 29 and help us and build on our work for Henrico County children.
